Australian Design Centre

Galleries, Museums and Collections

They are a leading centre for contemporary craft and design in Australia. They play a critical role in building a significant design culture for this country by nurturing a nation of innovative makers and thinkers and inspiring audiences to use design in their lives.

They celebrate the work of Australian artists who embrace the highest degree of craftsmanship and who continually explore material, process and ideas to advance contemporary design practice. Their program features more than 200 designers and has generated over AUD1.2 million in revenue for designers through artist fees and the sale of work in the last five years. Through their creative programs and partnerships, they reach an audience of more than 390,000 people nationwide each year.

Whether presenting dynamic and high quality exhibitions, publishing, retail, digital or educational activities, they’re determined to give craft and design the best and brightest voice possible. They’re a catalyst for new thinking and offer a design interface for their communities. Most importantly, they inspire people by stimulating their curiosity and encouraging those around them to believe in the power of design.
